Takin' Out the Trash 

Wanna smell like Marilyn Manson? Didn't think so.

Ever wonder what insignificance smells like? Well, wonder no more. Marilyn Manson recently announced that he was developing his own line of perfume. Apparently, the dude is still trying to mask the stench caused by his last record.

We hear that Manson has taken the development of his new fragrance very seriously. He has reportedly spent months hanging with the likes of Joey Lawrence, Spuds MacKenzie, Sinbad, and the Noid to really capture the scent of the has-been. Also, Manson has plenty of firsthand experience when it comes to being far past one's prime -- there's more anticipation for a sequel to Ishtar than for his next album.

Sure, we can understand where Manson's coming from. The guy can no longer shock and offend with his music, so he has to find a new way to annoy the masses. But here in Cleveland, between the smokestacks of U.S. Steel and the putrid Browns offense, we get more than our share of foul smells -- we hardly need a fading star in fishnets adding to our misery. Marilyn Manson, we're tossing you and your crappy new perfume onto the compost heap.
